Abstract

A set of answers to questions to employees of various companies in Lithuania may refer to various positive and negative aspects of the attitudes of employees. These are called Organizational Citizenship Behavior (positive) and Counterproductive Work Behavior (negative). The components in the answers may be grouped by expert knowledge, and by statistical analysis and, according to these approaches, based on expert domain knowledge by management specialists, fuzzy signature structures describing the mutual effects of single elements in the questionnaire may be created. There are some slight differences between the two results, that indicate that expert knowledge is sometimes not objective. An additional step applying hybrid Generalised Reduced Gradient algorithm and Genetic Evolutionary Algorithm for heuristic optimization of the aggregation parameters in the Fuzzy Signatures reveals a final model according to the responses. These latter results raise some new questions, including the idea of the use of undeterministic graphs, thus resulting in Fuzzy Fuzzy Signatures. The method could be applied to other similar multicomponent vague data pools.
